Aria & Aries, Aria
A subversive, irreverent revenge romp from the wickedly witty mind of Kathy Lette. Perfect for fans of Jane Fallon and Dawn O'Porter.
Best friends Matilda, Penny, Cressida and Jo are approaching their sixties with flair until, one by one, their bubbles are burst. Matilda, a bestselling novelist, is dropped by her publisher; Penny is cut from her prime-time TV show in favour of her male co-host; Cressida's acting agent can only offer her female incontinence adverts and Jo... well Jo realised it's still a man's world a while ago.
Confronted by a society that believes they're all past their amuse-by dates, the friends vow to face their non-entity crises together. Each has been trampled on by men, so it's time for a little revenge. Let the games begin!

Great teaser for what looks like a really interesting book - can’t wait to read the full thing! Kathy Lette knows how to draw you in with just a few sentences, that’s for sure.
I requested this as it is compared to Jane Fallon and I'm a huge fan so thought it would be something I'd enjoy.
Kathy Lette sets up the beginnings of a great story here, the twist at the end of Chapter 1 really took me by surprise. I enjoyed her fun writing style and how the story seems to be developing at a good, quick pace.
Difficult to give too much detail as I've only read the 12 page extract.
Would love to read the full novel and see where the story goes from here.
I absolutely loved Kathy Lette's writing style in this extract. It was incredibly witty and drew me in straight away. Despite having only been briefly introduced to the characters they already well defined and I'm excited to see how their stories develop. I loved the twist at the end of this extract and didn't see it coming at all.
I'm now desperate to read the rest of this book as this one chapter sampler simply wasn't enough!
